Metabolic Syndrome is characterized by a combination of obesity, hypertension, and high blood cholesterol, and linked by the underlying resistance to insulin.  Some experts refer to it as a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors disease associated with insulin resistance.  It is estimated that metabolic syndrome affects about 50 million Americans.  Possible outcomes of metabolic syndrome include the development of type-2 diabetes and increased risk of stroke and other heart diseases.

The American Heart association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute recommend metabolic syndrome be identified as the presence of three or more of the following components: elevated waist circumference; elevated triglycerides, reduced high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; elevated blood pressure; and elevated fasting glucose.   

What is the best way to deal with the risk factors?  Lifestyle therapies are considered first-line interventions for managing both long- and short-term risks, including fat loss, increased physical activity, and adopting a healthy diet, including whole grains, fruits and vegetables, fish and lean protein, and low-fat dairy, fiber supplements; reduced intake of saturated fat and cholesterol.  Whole grains are particularly multi-therapeutic in managing metabolic syndrome because they deliver a wealth of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and phytonutrients.  Many experts agree that whole grains are notably beneficial for maintaining vital markers of cardiovascular health like blood pressure, cholesterol levels, homocysteine levels and inflammation, in addition to aiding weight management.  Give your health a boost with safe lifelong supplements™!
